Oh My! July!

Fully Summertime.
Finally July. 
Still green enough to be fresh. 
But hot enough to be hazy in the evening. 
The pelicans and geese are enjoying the slough.
A lazy muskrat takes a slow path across the water.
The deer leaps through a barley field that is as tall as he. 
We soak it in.  
Oh My! July in GriggsDakota.

  1. Jane, I smiled when I saw this post because last week we encountered our first muskrat. As in the photo in your post, he was navigating his way across a pond in our neighborhood, carrying a mouthful of reeds. My son and I didn't know what he was! T thought he must be a beaver. My guess was a mink. They swim, don't they? A kind neighbor told us it was a muskrat, an animal plentiful in these parts. :)
